Last week we gave you the opportunity to help survivors of the sex trafficking trade by purchasing colorful handmade Kantha quilts. This week we’re giving you the opportunity to help the Red Cross hurricane relief by purchasing handknits at our Sample Sale!
Those of you who have been long time customers of My Sister Knits may fondly remember Kate Salomon. Those of you who don’t know her will have seen her beautifully knitted samples in the shop. A few years ago Kate moved to Vermont but her presence in the shop is still felt. Right now we have at least three of her samples on display! Ask about them the next time you are in the shop!
Kate has accumulated a daunting amount of her own handknits. She’s decided that it would be fabulous if some of these found a new home where they are truly appreciated and worn, all while helping a good cause.
Toward that end, My Sister Knits is having a two-pronged Sample Sale of her handknits with the proceeds going to Red Cross hurricane relief. Thursday, Nov. 16th from 4 – 6:30pm we will hold an Instagram auction! Go to our Instagram, @mysisterknits, to bid on your favorite items! We will notify winners that evening.
But wait! Before that, on Tuesday, Nov. 14th, those of us in or near Fort Collins will have a special opportunity to purchase these items in the shop from 5 – 7:30pm. Most of these you will recognize and most have never been worn!
Among the items Kate has given us are cowls, shawls, sweaters, hats, and even a blanket! Think instant Christmas gifts!
Join us for either of these events and know you are again helping those in need. Plus, you get to have something you may have drooled over in the shop!
